News from Lindsey Wilson College/Energy Technology Academy

COLUMBIA, KY - Students in the Lindsey Wilson College Energy Technology Career Academy moved a step closer on Wednesday toward their goal of producing alternative fuel when a 40-gallon biodiesel processor arrived. The processor was assembled and housed at the Adair County High School FFA building, which provides much-needed space and a well-ventilated area to produce biodiesel fuel.


The first 40-gallon batch of biodiesel fuel will be produced from used vegetable oil provided by Coe's Steakhouse in Russell Springs, KY, according to ETCA Director Heather Spoon. The fuel will be tested on a diesel engine with the ultimate goal of supplying biodiesel fuel for diesel vehicles used by the City of Columbia.

The ETCA is a joint partnership between Lindsey Wilson College, Adair County High School and Russell County High School. Students at both high schools are enrolled in the career academy, the only one of its kind in rural America.
